Ravi has been my driver for more than 10 years. He helped me a lot during my first years , and thinking about it, he still does.
When I got to know Ravi , he had a small cookie –factory. He constributed those cookies in a big part of Sri-Lanka in a small lorry or van. Those days I used to send containers full of goods to Sri-Lanka and used a part of the factory for the storage of the boxes (around 500 boxes). Here we sorted them out and brought them, with Ravi or/and his staff, to the different villages in Sri Lanka. His help was very valuable for me.
After 5 years of owning his cookie factory, he had to give up his dream due to bigger cookie-factories. I told him he should go and be a driver. He knows so much about Sri Lanka and he knows so many people. After one year he decided he would like to become a driver for tourists. He followed all the courses, improved his English and passed all the exams.
I recommand him to everyone who needs a driver for a day, a roundtrip or a pick-up from the aeroport.
He is trustworthy, honest , reliable and always on time!
